This week we have a new one to us on our shelves:
The Firekeeper’s Son
by Linda Sue Park
As we were reading this story together, all I could think about was the scene in the Lord of the Rings movie when the beacons were lit. One was lit and triggered a chain reaction across the lands. All the mountain tops had one.
This is the same principal, only instead of lighting it when there was trouble, it was the job of the lightkeepers to light the bonfire when all was well.
This is a great read about a very real tradition, told in a beautiful way.
